Students in classrooms across the United States and parts of Europe are able to go on field trips to Buckingham Palace, Machu Picchu and the Great Barrier Reef, but they’ll be doing it through virtual reality. Sometimes it is easier to see and hear something than have it explained to you, and occasionally students just need to be taken out of a classroom environment and dropped into an immersive world; where they can watch dinosaurs walk around them or experience a performance at a West End theatre.
VR Tools, such as Google Cardboad, Google Expeditions, Nearpod, and more are most beneficial to expose people, from school-aged kids on up, to large-scale, global issues that are hard to grasp if they can't see them for themselves.
